Manchester City are set to reward four of their squad with improved contracts after the club regained the Premier League title this season. 

James Milner, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Joe Hart are all set to sign new deals at the Eithad in the wake of their title success. 

Hart, who lost his place in the City starting line-up during the season, showed impressive form during the final stages of the Premier League and repaid the faith manager Manuel Pellegrini showed in the England number one. 

The new deal will be a timely boost to Nasri as well - after the midfielder was a surprise exclusion in Didier Deschamp's France World Cup squad this week. 

The 26-year-old, who scored the first goal in City's final day 2-0 win over West Ham, has had poor relations with the French national team in the past and was overlooked for his summer's competition in Brazil 

26-goal-man Dzeko took full advantage of the injury to Sergio Aguero and showed he is worthy of a starting role at City. 

The Bosnian striker has previously spoke of his frustrations of being used a 'super-sub', but is now a key component at the Etihad and looks set to continue this career in Manchester. 

28-year-old Milner, who will join Hart in England's World Cup squad for Brazil, is also being retained as Pellegrini looks to keep a similar squad for next season's task of retaining the title.
